Boston – Marr Scaffolding Company (MSC) was honored recently at the Access, Lift & Handlers (ALH) and KHL Group publishers annual awards in San Diego as the recipient of the Access Project of the Year Award in the “Access Equipment” category which recognized the Marr equipment utilized at the Encore Boston Harbor project in Everett for general contractor Suffolk (Boston), glass manufacturer Ferguson Neudorf Glass (Beamsville, Ontario) and electric sign company YESCO (Las Vegas, Nev.).
MSC’s access equipment at Encore included 12 boom lifts, 45 scissor lifts, and 13 suspended scaffold platforms for the installation of the glass façade and signage on the exterior sheer walls of the 3 million-square-foot structure. For MSC, Encore Boston Harbor represented one of the most complicated and challenging suspended scaffolding projects in the company’s history due to the demanding schedule, weather conditions and location. The installation of scaffolding was extensive; 20 systems scaffold towers were erected on top of Encore’s sheer walls and 30-foot “birdcages” or walkways were built around the steel to provide access for contractors.
In addition to MSC, sister companies Daniel Marr & Son Company and Marr Crane & Rigging played a major role in the construction of the casino.
In June 2018, Daniel Marr & Son completed the steel erection having installed over 12,000 tons of steel and metal decking. Concurrently, Marr Crane & Rigging provided a variety of cranes during the steel erection phase including several 90-ton cranes and a 300-ton crane.
